Of all the stats, most of them negative, compiled already by the 2010 Orioles, here is maybe the most telling one of all.
O's record when leading after 7 innings:
So, last year, when they held the lead after seven, they won the game 91 percent of the time. This year that number is just 20 percent. Last year, they blew five such leads all year. This year, they have blown four in just nine games.
If that number were 4-1 instead of 1-4, their record would be 4-5...
